Spring's around the corner, and the weather's downright balmy. You know what that means.
Wish is holding "Only Undies Night." The bash - which runs the first and third Monday of every month at the Warehouse District club, 621 Johnson Court, Cleveland, 216-902-9474 - gives people a chance to judge others not by the clothes they wear, but by their underwear.
"You don't have to take your clothes off," says DJ Larry Szyms. "But you'd be surprised how many people like partying in their underwear."
Even some that come fully dressed.
"We'll have people walk in off the street, and they're shocked to see a bunch of people dancing around in underwear," he says. "Then, like 10 to 15 minutes later, they drop their clothes, and they're partying, also."
But don't get the wrong idea: "Only Undies" is more pajama party than pervy orgy, according to organizer Kathy Sazdanoff.
"The idea started a few years ago when me and my friends would go dancing," she says. "Afterward, we would wind up at someone's house and just get in our undies and drink and dance some more."
Sazdanoff, a Web designer who prefers white cotton casuals, attended her first undies, er, I mean, pajama party when she was 10. She started posting photos of her latter-day parties on her Web site, www.onlyundiesclub.com, only to discover an online community of devotees just dying to hop out of their clothes.
Even the most hard core can lose their mojo, though.
"There were some tough nights out there during the winter," says Szyms. "But now that it's getting warmer, people really look forward to going out in their underwear."
Szyms, one of Clubland's top spinners, carved out his groove playing 1980s tunes. Madonna popularized the whole lingerie-as-going-out-attire in the '80s.
But that's where the connection ends, says Szyms, a boxer man.
"I'll play a lot of '80s stuff at the parties," he says. "But I always find that it's less about the music than what the people are wearing."
Or not wearing.
Admission is $3 before midnight; $5 after midnight. Call 216-902-9474.
Spring for art's sake
Man, art parties multiply like rabbits this time of the year.
Hop on over to 1300 Gallery, 1300 West 78th St., Cleveland. At 6 p.m. Saturday, the gallery will hold an opening bash for its 50/50 Show - an exhibition featuring 50 artists showing 50 works, each selling for $50. OK, so shouldn't that be the 50/50/50 show? Either way, 1300 parties are usually a blast. Free. Call 216-939-1300.
At 6 tonight, Spaces, 2220 Superior Viaduct, Cleveland, throws an opening bash for "Dissent: Political Voices." Yeah, I know: The show explores political dissent and how it relates to U.S. foreign policy, globalism, consumerism, war, the media, advertising, maladies, ills, etc. But that shouldn't stop you from drinking wine and having fun. Free. Call 216-621-2314.
so we've heard....
"so we've heard...."
Ha! I only told you and my wife. What the hell is this "we've" stuff?
from your wife
Watch it you two, I sense a Rodney Dangerfield joke heading into this thread. ROFLOL.
LOL! Well now, I'm just going to talk to her about this party I'm having.
Gross, just plain gross. She looks like she's trying to fart.
And the guest of honor is a pair of tweezers.
LOL, I did a search for the pig's picture, and it directed me a site parodying bad celeb pictures as potty experiences.
"And the guest of honor is a pair of tweezers."
Ouch, I think I was just burned.
You won't see me partying in my undies. The last time I did that I woke up butt naked in the north Georgia mountains, not knowing where my clothes were!
So buy me a drink big boy. And how 'bout a little dance?
"Has anybody seen my pants???"
She'd have to buy me a drink, then I MIGHT dance with her.
